Joy Womack: The White Swan
After leaving her home in Texas at the early age of 15, Joy Womack made history as the first U.S.-born student to graduate from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy’s main training program and the first American woman to sign a contract with the Bolshoi Ballet.
Providing exclusive access to her grueling training regiment, JOY WOMACK: THE WHITE SWAN follows the world-renowned dancer’s personal and professional life – from her daily challenges, setbacks and injuries to becoming prima ballerina of the Kremlin Ballet and her performance of a lifetime in Swan Lake.
